Trumps chances of avoiding jail ?

I worry most about Biden's chances of survival if he happens to get covid. I am sure there is a good reason he wears that mask like a life saving device.

Most know this Hunter email scandal is bogus.  Only Trump's hard core supporters believe in it.  He'll do himself no good attacking in this manner.  For the majority, it will just make him look more s

The 60 minutes interview that Trump just released made him look pretty bad.  He still seems a bit shocked when people don't suck up to him like Fox News and his inner circle.   Hopefully he'

Any sane person watching that debate would not vote for Biden.  Pity him, yes.  Vote for him?  No.

lots of stuff to disagree with here. But on taxation, even a majority of Republicans think the rich should be taxed more.


Fox News Poll: Voters favor taxing the wealthy, increasing domestic spending

 On gun control

Fox News Poll: Voters favor gun measures, doubt Congress will act

And on the environment a huge majority of americans favor stricter environmental regulations and laws.

More Republicans say stricter environmental regulations are ‘worth the cost’

The question was what is viewed as far/radical left.  If you are in the WH or Congress, its <deleted> all what 'the people' want, its what you local voters want. Did the current Senate raise taxes, no. Did they pass environmental legislation to protect the environment, no. Did they pass gun control legislation, no. Why, because a good portion of their base would be furious, regardless if the majority of Americans want such legislation.

As pointed out even a majority of Republicans favor increasing taxes on the wealthy and much stricter gun control laws. And close to half favor stricter environmental regulations. If you want to start cherry picking small groups of local voters, fine. But that's what you're doing: cherry picking.

          The day after..........  a fantasy based on a true story

 

"OK  everyone .   Welcome to the highly esteemed position of "public servant" .   (laughter erupts)

"settle down, settle down.   Joe is taking a nap,  but in a bit his caretaker err  publicist will be briefing us on how to play the new game in town.   We will be instituting plan "surf the wave" ,  a catchy phrase that should resonate with the younger generation of masked subjects err citizens.  We will be working in committee,  after committee,  after committee  to work on new legislation that will make

it look like we are doing something.   We all favor new laws ,  Right ?  (applause all round).

 

Ok, all for today,  You newbies be sure to get your free health insurance cards which cover you, your family,  and your illegal immigrant workers from now till you die.  And , god bless us and the people who voted for us.    "

trump and supporters keep going on about the 'radical left' / far left', yet from a Western European POV never observed such policy platform commentary from the Dems, nor from their online policies. Out of curiosity, in US culture, what are the main policies that define 'radical left' / far left'?

Simply google Squads far left agenda if you're interested. Do your own homework.

I've seen polls claiming 90% plus of republicans 'like' trump. If what you're saying is correct, why so?

I "cherry picked" YOUR stupid list of examples, exactly!!!!  You, obviously, do not understand the original question I was responding to which has nothing to do with your train of thought and has nothing to do with how the "far/radical left" is PERCEIVED.

If you can't just look at Trump and Biden on tv and tell which one is healthier and more coherent, you have much bigger problems than being dead wrong in a public forum. 

 

Many comments on how Donald leaned heavily on the podium. Guess he needs to prop himself up.

So you make a line of argument laced around accusations of ‘far left’ but when asked to explain what you mean by ‘far left’ you refuse to provide your own definition and direct us to conduct a ‘Google search’.

 

A ‘Google search’ has a habit of returning millions of hits, often tens of millions.

 

I guess by sheer quantity of hits something equating to your idea of ‘far left’ is in there somewhere.

 

The question is, would you yourself recognize it, or are you simply trotting out pre-canned ‘talking points’ that you are demonstrably unable to defend?!

I'm not a US citizen so unfamiliar with all the US political slang. I entered the Google search you suggested, looked at the Fox News commentary, I guess one of your acceptable sources.. Summary points don't come across as politically far left in the normal sense of the term, rather, reasonable i.e. a function of government is to care for the less fortunate.

 

The Working Families Party "People's Charter" calls for free public healthcare, universal childcare, creating millions of green jobs, canceling student debt, a $15 minimum wage and shifting money away from police departments and toward investments in schools and communities.

My understanding of shifting money away from police, (e.g. to mental health workers) is in fact to enable police to focus on core policing, not to remove police from frontline / crime prevention / investigation roles.
